"Unavoidable truth"

As the crisp autumn air blew through her hair

My heart missed a beat as our eyes locked in a stare

She held me close and I squeezed her hand into mine

I could see the terror and regret in her mind

She cleared her throat as the inevitable came

She explained how we grew and just aren’t the same

I thought I was prepared to hear those terrible words

But no more matter how hard you practice. the syllables burn

They say fall is the season where everything dies

And as our love does a new one will rise

But I`ll never forget the vows for our lives

to never forget, as we say our goodbyes
